a ship sails 145 kms on a bearing of 215 degrees. how far south of its starting point is the ship.

  • math -

    ^%$*&@ math teachers think they are navigators. The "heading" is 215, NOT the "bearing". You take a bearing on something outside the ship, for example it might be the direction of a lighthouse.

    south is 180
    so
    35 degrees west of south

    answer = 145 cos 35
